Find creative talent from Columbia College Chicago
My name is James Vitullo. I am a professional freelance photographer who shoots wedding, portrait, commercial, and event aspects in the Chicagoland area.
Being a self-taught artist for 12 years, immersing myself in this field only impacted my career with positivity. Beginning as an artist where my style was only known by family and a limited amount of friends, this expanded to an array of people through connections of friends and also professionals within my field. I enjoy capturing the world and the beauty it holds and shares with the inhabitants present.
“Anything is a Photograph.” This is a motto developed from my aspiring career that turned into a feasible, potential business. My work is all over the board, including the living and inanimate, animal and portrait, urban and natural. I specialize in candid aspects as well as in-the-moment captures. Wherever I am, I end up with a composition worth visualizing behind the lens of my Nikon. My artistic mind conjures up ideas that conform to the situation at hand, such as angle, framing, and potential post-processing outcomes.
Other aspects of the photographic field I want to explore more are fashion, commercial, and constructed tableau. I have much more to learn at Columbia, and this experience will only offer opportunities worth taking advantage of. Skill can only improve from here, which makes this college a hub for experimentation and expression of true passion.
